Because of you – we’re able to create better lives for people in Skagit County
During our annual campaign, we challenged individuals, businesses and organizations to dig a little deeper in their wallets, free up more time to volunteer in their community and join others to help solve some of our toughest problems. We asked and you delivered!
Together, your in-kind and financial contributions of over $1 million dollars fed the hungry, sheltered the homeless and helped families become financially stable. Also, volunteers from across the county gave more than 133,000 hours of their time to nonprofit organizations.
On behalf of the nearly 30 agencies that deliver services in Skagit County, “Thank You” for giving 10% more – and understanding what it means to LIVE UNITED.
Volunteer of the Year Award

United Way’s Loaned Executive/Community Advocate Program
Washington Federal is “Invested Here”, which means we feel very strongly about helping in our communities. United Way is one of the most cost-efficient organizations for developing talent, raising money and promoting community involvement to help the less fortunate in our communities. Volunteering one of our employees to help support United Way’s annual campaign is not only a great experience for our people, but is a big part of what United Way is all about. We’re glad to assist. Greg Peck, United Way Board Member, SVP, Northern Washington Division Manager, Washington Federal.
